8:34 pm
enterprise division of the city and county of san francisco so we're a government agency run like a business this means we receive no tax dollars for operating the airport in fact, we are self-sufficient nevertheless of operating plus we write a check to city hall every year and last year's annual service payment was 40 plus million dollars back to the bottom line for san francisco every new passenger every new gloift the gateway directly contributes to the overall economics of the city and county of san francisco who is underlying sfo? many people any airlines (laughter) back it's a little bit tricky

8:50 pm
institute a regional think tank this developed an economic data that is extremely useful to the policymakers and the general public comment we're pleased to have the president of the bay area connective institute here prior to president doctor weinberg was the senior president and the senior fellow dr. weinberg published in diverse media outlets and arranging from political to policy studies journal and he's quite a television celebrate having appeared on such diverse group of television outlets ranging from fox news to mp r now we're fortunate to have
8:51 pm
doctor weinberg provide us with the regional updates this morning please help me welcome dr. weinberg to the stage. >> (clapping.) >> absolutely. >> morning everybody would you like more economic status thrown at you i'll be talking about the regional economy and try to get through that quickly and get to questions we'll see we're running arbitrate behind and he would i'll try to talk quickly what is going on well that is hot and end of story no, i have more slides but we - the bay area specifically has surpassed california's growth surpassed national growth you folks know that i'll talk about how that differs across the region but
8:52 pm
things are on fire in the bay area a little bit a shrine sign of a shrouding slow down it is a 3 alarm fire instead of a 4 alarm fire and not isolated from the integral trends but for the time being things are quite hot a terrific demand for labor we're effectively at full employment in the entire bay area this is somewhat across counties san mateo and san marin at the peak employment less in contra-costa alameda we're the 19 largest economy in the world i think people think of when i talk about the bay area i'm talking about the 9 areas around
8:53 pm
the bay if you put the 9 county together we're the 19 largest economy in the entire world wisp last year a big deal and congratulations to all of you but this is the scale of what we're talking about this is really a huge amount of economic activities so the thing i want to point out for years we had china envy and particular president candidates we'll remain nameless way out-of-date in his understanding of what going on in (laughter) oh, his or her understanding of what is going on in the international economy chinese economy is growing probably not economic data in a transparent way a significant evidences that
8:54 pm
came out today and recently there is a terrific housing bulk in china a slow down in china but per the most optimistic status san jose is growing more quickly than is china, san francisco's economy is very hot and so this is really where it is happening and certainly we'll get into some of the you know not equally good for all people and all around california from the perspective of economic growth this is where this is at one of the things you're aware of is despite of the fact a terrific economic recovery a lot of economic growth particularly, no san francisco and san jose the amount of poverties has ♪ plays places in the bay area gone up during the great
8:55 pm
recession less to do with the people's income has gone down but the cost of living has gone up phenomenally in the bay area you folks are aware of that in your everyday so you'll it says it seems as from the poverty is good in california when you look at just at income when you look at what actually is reality income and how much things cost the actual measure of poverties in the state of california is quite high and quite high in the bay area so this is something to wrestle with but not that our economy - no objective way of sayings the united states economy is doing poorly in comparison to the international k350er9s not an objectively true analysis what is true the economy is not working for
8:56 pm
everyone in the united states that's what the data says we need to figure out that and i'm glad in california in san francisco specifically we spent a lot of time thinking about that i love what the mayor is doing on homelessness and other issues a critical issue for business and tourism and critical issue for people in the city the bay area our sale prices are higher than other states quite a bit to do with the slide in the actual travel presentation on supply and demand and an actual thing here in the bay area as with homes so as hotels with homes we have not been building they're much more expensive and you know as a side note it is interesting to see people in san francisco saying i know how we can fix this problem build less that will bring the cost of
8:57 pm
homes down that economic idiocy this is a supply and demand problem; right? you think that is a problem caused by increasing demand into the bay area so we're going to solve a demand problem by limiting supply completely nuts and people that respect to harvard university are making those kinds of proposals in the city i don't know what we were doing maybe hanging out with gary johnson in any case that's what is going on here >> all right. the housing building building permits are increasing on this slight we have an uptick in multi family unit in recent years not beginning to keep up with the demands we can go into is the policies associated with that if folks are interested in this is not the sort of thing to be
8:58 pm
prude proud of the 3 highest rental market in the mansion bay area san francisco is coming in at number 2 you don't want to work on being number one we want to work on this together largely a factor of supply and demand so you know tourism in san francisco you know on par with the other metropolitan areas we can't compete with the statistics so not going to try to do so and you know here's another myth about california and the bay area specifically we hear all the time we have those high taxes isn't that going to chase
8:59 pm
the wealthy out of the state maybe eventually i'm not saying i love paying taxes although some rich people founder how the how to pay no taxes with whatsoever that's a nice trick but not what is happening to tie in california and the bay area the wealthy are coming to california and the bay area and lower income folks that are leaving because of cost of living one of the narratives no basis of reality no objection i am not i'm expecting you to have my slides live and wipe them out if anyone trying i tries to make that point we have seen influx of people poeven the bay area that is somewhat different quite
9:00 pm
a while we were seeing significant net domestic out migration bound by international folks coming in the bay area and a lot of people moving dominick over the past couple of years we continue to grow this is the average week day bart ridership and i'm going to i guess plugging i mean connective guy but the transportation network in the bay area how many of you are regular bart riders okay awesome i'm sure i probably bump up against all of you or hugged unintentionally whatever it is that you got to like people; right? generally it gets you where you want to go but you got to like people that is actually you know bagging being a daily
9:01 pm
bart rider i live in oakland but i believe in the fundamental goodness of human beings if human beings were not fundamentally good that wouldn't workout most of time people are cool with each other so we a bart on or about coming up on the ballot make up your minds those are the life blood of our areas and need additional investments so one of the things i think that is a little bit of a myth oh, you're a tech dmi primarily focused in tech in the bay area or in san francisco what does that even mean; right? >> tech is everything it is facebook a tech company i don't know they use technology like any other company they're a
9:02 pm
media company; right? we've got you you know tremendous concentration of the media business, tremendous concentration in vehicles and tremendous electrician in wal-mart basically through tech a significant and substantial footprint in the innovation component of basically every industry not like back in the day in 2000 where you know everything else was somewhere else and we have the stock puppets and the website that was not a thing it went away that is different when you think about what likely to happen in the upcoming or moving into an economic slow down the types of activity that is happening in the bay area is essential to the health of those companies in the future going forward because this is where they vicinity the
9:03 pm
future of their industries there is belt-tightening we're not immune to the friends of the rest of the world but the investment in the bay area and the employees and the activities their engaging in the bay area are essential to their core function in the just some websites so we talk about google; right? or facebook and google officially did this their albeit google and a bunch of things those are many different companies that are based here in the bay area that are likely to be substantial economic machines for the regionals decades to come and unlikely to go away the economic outcome on a sustained basis for san francisco in the bay area region is very strong as a result of those things
9:04 pm
again, we have a fairly diverse economy when you look at sectors across the set of industries those are the fortune 500 companies in the bay area biotech tech is everything and financial and industry and consumer and media a more diverse economy it than folks give us credit for sdpifrt is a on and on resiliency for san francisco and the broader economy that's another crazy thing; right? so there's a silicon you folks traveled every place has a silicon something chicago has silicon practicey a silicon something in china you'll think as a result san francisco and the bay area will really be still doing well but
9:05 pm
beginning to lose some of its dominance in terms of the innovation economy worldwide the opposition is happening we're actually while all the silicon somethings pro-life rat in the capital of innovation could go away maybe soon but it hadn't gone away yet one measure of looking at this is insane is the share of u.s. venture capital that is most venture capital plan capital at an owl time high 70 percent venture capital of being invested in california but you have over 50 percent of all venture capital being invested in anywhere in the united states be invested in the 9 county bay
9:06 pm
area i love that i think there's a lot of fascist stuff going on here is that much fascist stuff really are we that good i don't know people keep giving us money like we are to continue it is those trends kick up-and-up and not translating into the tourism industry and hotels and so forth is really a fascinating thing to see it is true when you talk about patents from people from houston's get uppity i love austin's my brother lives in austin certainly my father part of texas but if you look at the total patent shared u.s. patents and so on the bay area is still an order of magnitude or several multiples above the domestic
9:07 pm
competitors that's another way of looking at the ongoing strength of the economy and the ongoing importance of bay area in terms of global warming innovation let me ended and if we have time for questions we'll go ahead if not i'll make my way offstage one myth about the area we can't solve our own problems we have a tremendous need for housing and to invest in infrastructure have to increase our commitment to work on workforce development and support housing and all sorts of things that move people out of powerful into economic success we have the ability to address those problems we see most countries that do infrastructure investment do it at the federal level that's the right level to
9:08 pm
do it al at in the bay area queer not letting that hold us back a lot of funding flowing into transportation investment and ballot measures whether measures in santa clara county or the measures golden gate bridge and contra-costa alameda e contra costa and tackling the issues around housing i need all of you to talk with our friends and say we have had some of the people in the world live near us it is important that san francisco continued to be a welcoming community so i'm not super old i'm not super young and since i was born there are twice as many people in the world as there once were;
9:09 pm
right? and some of the people are going to need to be around here; right? we need to make places for people to live so, yeah we want to preserve the character the neighborhoods by the way, that phrase is never been used throughout the history of time in favor of minorities so we need to preserve the you know our city and the 101 and so on but need to adapt to continue to remain a welcoming community that makes places for people to live, you know, what the best solution for homelessness is homes it is fairly straightforward (laughter) >> as we think about putting people into places we need to have places to put them i believe we can do this together i'll ended open that note he hope we'll work on this together
9:10 pm
thank you very much for keeping this city and region a fun and exciting place to visit if we have time i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> i think we have mikes right there. >> otherwise i'll keep on telling jokes. >> all right. the back (inaudible). >> yeah. i mean, i think that you know, i talked some smack about you know certain folks representing certain neighbors in san francisco frustrate about the amount of buildings that will or won't happen certainly building should happen in a lot
9:11 pm
of places in oh, by the way, the less you build the more quickly it ask gentrifies but can't all happen in san francisco and shouldn't all happen in san francisco brisbane reenthd 4 thousand units of housing in favor of zero units of housing that's why organizations like the bay area council organizations that he really think regionally and try to tackle solutions are part of the issue i think that, you know, a lot of this is just the public dialogue you know so there is actually sort of a public shaming component to it i think is necessary but there are also a lot of things that we can do to be - important substantially technical so my institute calls for condition more translation funding on building housing;
9:12 pm
right? will you don't need more roads and you know potholes fixed we'll direct that money towards the places that created the places for people there's a public communications side of this and a by reason of of in the weeds policy sides of that that is important to work on this we all need to make place for the new people that want to come and live in your communities people will say a lot oh, we had enough connective growth yeah, so - that's - you know, if you got users that's fine but someone that is looking for a job that's a difficult thing to hear and you can't from angle economic perspective say oh, it's fine if we don't grow in
9:13 pm
san francisco we'll grow in austin actually more positive spill over from places like austin if san francisco grows more if san francisco and the bay area grow less less positive spill over and bad for the economy i like that president obama came out saying that bay area area is having an impact here and a negative impact on the country's economy those people in sacramento is pointed out people said oh, the bay area council controlled that report you guys are controlling that we didn't know that we like it when people think we don't control
9:14 pm
things as well as i think we don't actual control the president so it is good to have president obama and a number of proving voices out there saying this are not the implications in the decisions you're interested in making in brisbane is more poverty for people in the area keep in mind that you are creating poverty when you are and you're creating more economic instigation and i recollect segregation when you make those decisions so be clear i don't have on opinion about this obviously. >> ma'am. >> (laughter). and (inaudible)
9:15 pm
>> yeah yeah. i'd hedge your bets a little bit on china i mean certainly you know look we're talking, of course, another thing crazy people think that things in the united states and world are getting worse we're now more aware of the bad things happening in the world because of the media i'm getting to our question we have lifted two billion people in the world into the three middle-class there are
9:16 pm
hundreds of millions of consumers in china than a couple of decades ago that will continue to be the case however, i do expect there will be a significant economic slow down in china it is happening so i wouldn't put all your eggs in one basket but you know, i think we're going to see low and sustained growth throughout much of the world starting to see what is going on in the san francisco thank you for the presentation in san francisco earlier and have a if you can day everybody. >> (clapping.) >> happy thursday morning just a quick question how many people think if they have dr. weinberg in economics they would have
9:17 pm
gotten an a let's give him a applause i got a c i told my parents i cared about economics we are really excited to put this program together. you are putting our plans together you need critical information you've heard about the global trends we have we're going to bring up micki the director of cb r e hotels for those of you who don't know they rebranded and took over p k f mickey will talk about what is happening and the ad r occupancy that is important when an overnight investors stays in a hotel and pays a rate this has pan impact in san francisco so, now an outcome mickey .
9:18 pm
>> (clapping.) >> okay. >> thank you for the introduction okay. so thank you for having me today as i mentioned i was a part of p k f prior to the accusations and spent a lot of time in new york and spent the bulk of my time in san francisco. >> so the presentation today will cover some basic topics first, the accuracy assessment from the previous work ethics you'll see how our forecasts are played out and go through a quick summary of national trends and talk about the forecasts followed by the sfmta forecast
9:19 pm
and interesting how the airbnb is effecting the industry how accurate have we been this first slide shows a comparison the third quarter hotel verizon forecast versus what happened at the end of 2015 for the united states we were pretty much on point with our occupancy the 65, 66 percent ad r came in softer what we favored for 2015 that resulted in a softer part and the same trend was seen for the san francisco s f m a basically at capacity and pretty much our ad r forecasts were softer moving on to a few trends in the industry from our 2016 trends which is part of 2015 data over
9:20 pm
the past years revenues have increased faster expenses and going forward, however, over the next couple of years expenses are catching exceeding revenue growth with leveling off over the next couple of years 2017-2018 an unprecedented time you'll seeing wamg growth and pay increases accounting for a lot of the expense growth with that said when you look at the growth operating profit it is a huge increase over the past 8 years you hit a trough in 2019 with the recession but you're seeing it increasing inform record
9:21 pm
levels in 2017 it's over 60 percent increase in the gop so good times in industry for all of us now in terms of construction activity on for the u.s. pipeline the change the first two columns show wear we're circling forecasting versus what we were forecasting in the second quarter of 2015 a 5 percent increase in construction starts a little bit lower in projects in various stages of planning and virtually no change in the overall pipeline what is interesting about this slide what you're seeing a lot less projects proposed under construction or being property today than during the last cycle in 2008, 22 percent less
9:22 pm
promotions and overall 24 less proposed last cycle less projects and this time a furrier projects in the pipeline which is probably a good thing and hopefully not lead to the same problems as last time in terms of overall market we are operating at the record capacity 65 and a half percent occupancy the highest ever been it is significantly higher than a long term average rate growth the long term average of ad r growth is over 3 percent in line with the rate of inflation you've seen a significant increase over the past several years but starting to slow down
9:23 pm
and forecasting 3 and a half percent for 2016 about 4 percent for 17 and 4 percent for 2018 that is well above the long term growth but you'll see that revenue for 2016 is forecasted to increase 3 and a half percent and had to rise it down ad r is softening across the city for the s f m a san mateo and parts of marin just over 51 thousand rooms 33 or 34 comprise the city of san francisco now then this is directly from the hotel horizon support but the pipeline there is a lot of properties in various stages that you'll discuss of development
9:24 pm
so for the san francisco ms a we're and capacity 84 or 85 percent in the close 85 percent for 2016 but forecasting a slight decline in 2017-2018 and that will coincide with some of the things in roomthsdz at the moscone center you'll see that in the past several years since 2011 ad r is double digits which is very strong we can't expect that to continue so based on what we've seen this year forecasting slight ad r growth is increased but only at the 7 percent it is driven earlier this year in the super bowl and 2017-2018 we're forecasting 4 percent and 3
9:25 pm
percent and that is being affected by the lack loss in stoitss at the low events at the moscone center and the com presentation with that river will trail as well and so strong for 2016 but dmrienz in 2017-2018 last year blow the growth rate and this is the occupancy is quite strong and interesting the ad r between 2009 and 2020 is projected to double so how do we stack up versus the the top markets second to new york and above away who in dark green are growth exceeded that
9:26 pm
of those other top market we're doing pretty well the same for ref car second in the top markets and once again boston growth in recent years has exceeded ours slight in terms of growth we're stronger than the other 3. >> now for the city of san francisco you'll see that while there's been few hotels closing but the supply has remained virtually unchanged a few additions and subtractions but we're at 85 percent occupancy that is what the market can support and accommodate so there's probably some uncommitted demand out that pushing out to other parts of ms
9:27 pm
a and you'll see that once again the ad r growth 4 out of 5 double digit growth one go 9.7 strong growth and ref car has flown grown with that slowing down because of the occupancy component can't accommodate my any more demands so to say attributable to ad r this chart shows a lot of the historical data but year to date through year 2016 the occupancy has remainder strong and like i said partially attributable to the supervise and ad r has green but slowing after the super bowl and softer
9:28 pm
than projected with that said, ref car is up double digits through half of that year in terms of new supply there are also a lot of projects in various stages and it is hard to track all of them we're tracking 5 projects currently under construction on king street across the street for the park and hanson opened but this project is on been in various stages of development for 10 or 15 years and hard to develop another project the virgin hotel and the hotel on market and a small kwaegs addition in the presidio and the conversion of the old hotel 94 now san francisco proper one and
9:29 pm
thirty rooms and other various projects seems like every week on the report a new project that is proposed anywhere in the city but we keep a running list if they all come to fruition 34 hundred rooms but they'll not likely be built your financing is slowing down and hard to get various approvals not all are approved, operators and investors are starting to be more cautious but we track those and it is unlikely that all of these will be built this is just another summary 5 projects under construction and tracking 19 that doesn't include conversions of hotels being permitted as well
9:30 pm
so one big question is about airbnb and the effect of the hotel industry and anecdotally i went to a hotel conference a lot of the ceo's of hotel brands were is asked about airbnb and interestingly enough a lot of the ceo's two know what airbnb was or two thought that was not a threat at all but we're seeing over the 12 months if june to july to this year airbnb is putting up significant numbers and here to stay over 7 - 57 million units available up many, many percentages and sold 100 percent and the revenue yes, i did. >> shy of $5 billion a significant increase over the previous year airbnb is here to
9:31 pm
stay and showing tremendous growth in san francisco you're seeing there is shy of 5 thousand airbnb unit which is represent about 64 hundred bedrooms an average of one .3 bedrooms of per unionized compared to the 34 thousand hotel rooms 14 or 15 percent of the hotel supply in terms of how they perform airbnb in san francisco is they do units listed 63 percent occupancy and one and or one hundred $90 rate at a 200 and $50 rate airbnb is here to stay but does indicator to a slightly different guests looking for multiple units or can't find a
9:32 pm
room on certain days but here to stay and with that, that that concludes my presentation. opening up to any questions >> okay. great . >> (clapping.) >> that's correct mickey we appreciate that i'm here to give you what you all want a break for 10 minutes and cook for the sfaifl and the panel thank you. >> issues worked out so we wanted to start this part of show by showing you the video that charles want to show from sfo so gentlemen .
9:33 pm
9:34 pm
>> (clapping.) >> you see that is very exciting i go in and out of a lot of airport and frank not as good as sfo an exciting addition to a fantastic airport the next thing we want to do it take you through something that we've developed a new model to help us forecast for many of you been in
9:35 pm
san francisco and worked with us in the past all we typically were able to do around visitation and economic spending report in the rear the prior year a great next thing but problematic when you're trying to make plans in advance to nicole i'll introduce the senior research and revenue and her team working closely probably a year if not more to create a model that can really allow us to not only see what is happening in the year for the year but look forward a couple of years and have forecast what we think will happen. >> go to the next slide. >> so the model pathetic has a lot of input in any great
9:36 pm
forecasting model the more data the better because the stuff you know and think you know can be marked off against things you don't know but making a forecast on the key was getting a lot of great input on the things that effect visitation and create a reliable forecast going forward very about lodging statistics from p k f as part of the model and the flight information that tells us about the flights coming out san francisco how seats and the group sales statistics that nicole and her team keep in the database what bookings look like and our international visitor data with work tourism economics and a global warming expert used by many through the b mo and
9:37 pm
organizations to really understand what international inbound travel looks like and information has been really, really helpful to us in terms of being able to forecast from the intrvrl international side and domestic data if a research company longwood a constant panel that is ongoing talking to customers about their visit habits and every two or three years our partners do survey go out for a whole year and interview people all over the city that provides precise information who is here and the kinds of things they're interested in but a long story short this is a model that micro and her team have put together? looking at in depth where our visitors with coming from and
9:38 pm
what kind of money and more importantly what the forecast looks like without further ado, nicole our senior director of research do done a great job on the model. >> (clapping.) >> good morning and pleasure to be here thank you for the introductions howard that's an exciting opportunity many of you know me from the hotel does it occurred as i was listening to howard you're probably expecting me to go do into a forecast but actually putting all the puzzle pieces the airline and the spending piece so in today's presentation for the first 20 minutes we'll actual talk about did you visitors volume to we have in san francisco how is it
9:39 pm
performing and the different sectors and the new model that howard was mentioning is we're able to approval of the draft minutes in detail in order to make that easier for you the audience to follow along we've created those transition slides i'll move over the screen a little bit better we've created the transition slides you know exactly what cigarette television station we're talking about in the our first slide the visitor volume forecast who the audience some understand that all the slides from here on forward are in 27 terms for the reason this is an outcome conference and we know that the hotel community and the tourism at large interested in what the
9:40 pm
hotel lodging market and what might happen to the tourism industry at large we have 2015 actual and have restated what the visitor volume back to 2008 but for today's purpose we'll be talking about 2017 numbers so as you can see on the slide 2015 was the forecasted about $25 million almost $26 million total visitors to san francisco and the largest portion of that visit is the bay with 59 percentage but as you can see in the next slide our focus on the offer night visitor when we start to separate overnight visitors from day visitors and what in their spending you'll see the importance in that the visitors volume 2011 is expected to grow 2.8 percent and it was
9:41 pm
really great to have aaron from economic here they really laid the foundation of the macro are indicators that are driving that. >> and for the next few slides we'll focus on the overnight volume in particular make a distinction between international overnight to prepare you they'll all be positive. (laughter) so total spent i'm going to go back and forth a couple of times volume, 60 percent spent overnight visitors spent 89 percent that is why the association is so focused on the overnight visitors overnight visitors is the guests of stays
9:42 pm
that impacts primarily 40e89s but other lodging as well as overnight guests it stay with friends and family your main focus on the offer night sector and continue to talk about the international and other flights also wanted to point out overnight 6 percent of total overnight spent are coming from the international market that's why we at sfaifl focus offender the over assess and international market so next whatever you see highlighted in red the next couple of slides we're focusing on overnight we are looking at did over night even though this is important too (laughter) maybe not as quite important
9:43 pm
we'll be looking at overnight international we'll expect in 2017 for san francisco and i will want to emphasize that is the city and county of san francisco not the ms a those are the scaled numbers and as you can see the trajectory from 2009 to 2017 as the growth is positive in blue as you can see the domestic overnight visitors i know that number looks huge we look at the spend a high moment for all of you blue is domestic and red is international we're going to continue to see growth in domestic and overnight we charged the year growth in total domestic and international growth going back to 2008 as you can see that after the great
9:44 pm
recession the international growth really conspirator seated total and domestic growth the do i believe digit growth over or after the recession was abating and stabilizing we've been seeing percentage growth three and four percent and average 3, 3 and a half percent you the dip is interesting to point out was caused by a decrease in domestic demand what we looked san francisco hotels for its city and county of san francisco we saw specifically decreases in group and given we at sfaifl association look at moscone center the first one what was happening in 2013 with moscone moscone performed really well
9:45 pm
but things were down in 2013 and we were wondering well, why was group demand down in san francisco in 2013 we know that was not moscone when we looked what was going on in the country i at a time that was the government's the frustration, some of the national parks were closed it might have impacted some planning leisure planning that's the dip you see in 2013 overnight spent so i'm going to go back as you can see in blue the volume overnight visitor, for domestic and on the extent slide as you can see domestic and international broken down by spend even though you have the highlight volume in domestic overnight visitors it is really the spend that carries the
9:46 pm
volume so for us that's why our focus will remain >> so we as aaron mentioned earlier we continue and expect to see positive growth both dominick and internationally, however, the growth international overnight growth will pass of that domestic growth if part of the reason the stabilization of courtesy rate it was pointed out well by aaron that is the forecast that was created into the offer night visitors with emphasis on business we see domestic overnight visits than domestic travelers that growth
9:47 pm
is going to continue in a positive direction similar to total overnight growth we'll see side international market lead the growth at a faster rate than the domestic overnight volume growth san francisco's overnight leisure volume similar to the domestic overnight visitors the international sector is growing much faster than the domestic the positive outcome we expect it to grow 2 percent in 2017 and international business leisure i'm sorry let me restate total leisure to grow 3 percent and total business 2 percent. >> okay that was the hard part those are the slides i didn't like
9:48 pm
(laughter) now on to the fun stuff okay. so we have a limited marketing budget i hope that is okay to say that howard i don't see that because we need more money howard we do but that's another story so we have to put our money where we see the greatest time we need to understand how do we prioritize market and intern speaking we look at the international market versus the overseas market a lot of the partners are excusing how do you determine where you put our money and program i want to show a couple of slides i'll go back and forth what percentage of our spend comes from overseas country's and overseas wear
9:49 pm
defining as everything not on continent we're not counting mexico or canada when we look here we see in terms of volume canada and mexico which are in sdwroel 21st percent of our visitors volume is huge people want to know why we don't invest more in canada and mexico go 49 percent of total visitor volume comes from overseas our top 10 market china and brazil's and germany and france and japan and australia and thirty percent by overseas countries now look at the visitors spent go back a couple of wants 49 percent of visitors volume is over assess top 10 overseas
9:50 pm
countries make up 67 percent of visitor spend that's why we're investing heavily in the overseas market along the same lines we wanted to provide a ranging to you both by volume and by spend the top 12 international countries so again, if we range by visitors volume from first place to second place as you can see mexico and canada in the top 5 when you look at under spend there are at the bottom about 9 and 11 so we pay attention to those market and . >> that's not - our top priority and this slide remind me are a local will i pop so i think the last 20 slides
9:51 pm
we're trying to go through them quickly is the always a comparison between human immunodeficiency virus in order to understand the market we need to understand the volume that comes out of that market and the market generation that impacts directly the hotels and then also will how much do they spend so our contributor in terms of the overseas marketed it china - and then australia actually share spot number 4 in terms of visitors spend china take up 35 percent of total overseas visitor spend that is huge and that's why everybody is talking about that and they want me to talk about china you'll
9:52 pm
see why so china this is the only slide china we see - it is served a lot of efforts and goes through the data we have 2000 through 2015 and trying to figure out what the best way to talk about volume and performance and wanted to do a ranging from the country is ranked numbering today how important is it to point out how a country is growing you you know, i think are they number one today but slower next year so we wanted to create slides china is the only country's number one in visitors
9:53 pm
volume 6 hundred and 18 thousand visitors, san francisco seize 40 percent of total chinese arrivals in california when you look at the top 10 countries why they come to san francisco not surprisingly for 9 numbers for california as well that is interesting to correlate the volume for san francisco against the rest of california so 40 percent of the chinese that are roving to california actually come into san francisco we expect the continues strong growth as we have as charles pointed out a strong - the gateway - to san francisco to any city any designation in the
9:54 pm
united states so on this slide as you can see in blue and red the volume and those lines are important as it shows not only how many people are coming from a particular country but also how many paid nights they bring to our designation i can't have a country that is high in volume; right? maybe that's not a good country to focus on so china - faster than me other country in visitor volume and paid nights you know and the number two spots united kingdom ranged second three hundred and 38 thousand we expected to see the
9:55 pm
uk negative growth most ripple britain but the total volume on this is relatively flat so the new table remains a strong market for san francisco i'll speed up a little bit germany and ranks in the number 3 spot and positive growth for visitors spot out of germany france is circling in number 34 for a total visitor volume and we expect a positive growth of paid night in 17 over 16 is up a i wanted to point out we will
9:56 pm
make this presentation available after today so you can all have access to this. >> india is currently ranked number 5 visitors volume important to point out india is the number 5 now the growth next year in the 10 percent range for paid nights and volume and this is the last country we're looking for australia ranks next with 200 and one room nights and continue to see positive growth for australia for visitor volume and paid nights through the small competition direct flights in general and we also see the
9:57 pm
australian visitors is the key they have coming back to san francisco for - outside of the designations so san francisco association and economic partners are to a custom city level and those are why we wanted to do this so much concern in the market outcome what is 2017 might bring with the hotels there are concerns of positive forecasting positive in 2017 so we wanted to kick the tires a little bit before i show the
9:58 pm
study want to talk about the methodologies we took daily for the city and county of san francisco only and overlayed that with moscone conference or super bowl and looked at it 2015-2016 and accounted for the supervise so when the forecasted say quarter one 2017 we would go lethal 2015 without supervise for whatever else changes we'll see with the moscone so that's all pretty high confidence level in our methodology with that said, we know that this is a forecast we've created in september we have to continue to update actual forecasts it is
9:59 pm
forecasts it is actual through august 2016 we will update again in march so see how september, october and november have performed with that said, we forecast the city and county of san francisco for 2017 to be flat didn't sounds like taeshl exciting but not significantly negative it is quite one percent it is what we went through month to month with the conference and looked at it all the information on the indicators achieving positive growth next year will be challenging so an option perspective we think that some of that demand that was losing
10:00 pm
to moscone expansions april through september we'll explain minus - minor - that be be difficult and challenging for the communities to dive into 2017 and some properties might go backwards we're hearing that loufrtd and without the forecast we're working with planning and promotions. >> - we'll know more in a few months when we just want the forecast but for now that's our forecast 2 will be flat
10:01 pm
and that's all i have
10:02 pm
10:03 pm
10:04 pm
10:05 pm
10:06 pm
